Tamara’s fashion collection is housed in her guest room, where she collects and archives all her pieces for her daughter to one day inherit. With shoes covering two walls from floor to ceiling, Tamara recalls every pair, what was going on in her life and how old she was.
Now that she is at the helm of her own luxury footwear company and a mother to a 15-year-old her values have shifted. The mother and daughter duo are inseparable and travel everywhere to describing her as “my passion and my life”. They enjoy bonding over fashion and business and she also takes Minty, her daughter, to all her meetings so that one day she can follow in her mother’s footsteps.
